|Play a DeTemple '52™ and you'll see, hear and feel why any other variant becomes merely "ordinary" by comparison. It's the ultimate player's instrument.
The DeTemple '52™ is built the way the original solid body was meant to be. Michael DeTemple's guitars capture the elusive qualities found in only the most desired 1950s era instruments.
He individually handcrafts each guitar using his own proprietary methods and tone-improving techniques.
Simply put, you won't find a more highly evolved, responsive or toneful vintage-design electric guitar anywhere.
You can zero in on the exact specifications you prefer because every DeTemple guitar is built only to order. To discuss your preferences please call or email Michael DeTemple. He loves to talk about his work and handles all requests personally. And if you are not sure of the best way to go Michael can also help you with advice or recommendations.
The DeTemple '52™ comes with a DeTemple design hardshell case (we no longer include an owner's manual).
